understand, this is not libyans, this is not islam. we respect ambassador stevens. i personally worked with him as a u.s. envoy. he was very much loved and respected in libya. but the question remains, why the violence in libya? and of course, we saw it in tunisia and other countries. i bring up the issue of traumatized transition nations. we have to work with these groups and address the issue of identity. on the ground, this is one of the biggest issues civil society is coming together with. in most cases, there is an assumption, in order to receive funding or beat it accepted by western nations, you have to distance herself from religion. the exception has been in libya where you have seen some groups stepped out. in particular, there is a network of some of the most respected people in libya who have been very active in terms of issuing statements. even after the revolution, in 2011, the network issued a statement to promote international women's rights. so here we have a country in the midst of a revolution for freedom and they took a step back to talk about women's rights, we res

for both. president obama has said that ambassador chris stevens and his colleagues represented the best of america, and he is right. we all mourn their loss. the attacks against us in libya were not an isolated incident. they were accompanied by anti- american riots in nearly two dozen other countries, most in the middle east, but also in africa and asia. our embassies have been attacked, our flag has been burned, many of our citizens have been threatened and driven from their overseas homs by vicious mons chardon "death to america." these mobs which did the black banner of islamic extremism on the anniversary of 9/11. as the dust settles, as the murdered are buried, americans are asking how this happened. how the threats we face have grown worse, and what this calls on america to do. these are the right questions. i have come here today to offer a larger perspective on these tragic recent events, and to share with you, and to share with all americans, my vision for a freer, more prosperous, and more peaceful world. the attacks on america last month should not be seen as random acts. th

. first of all, ambassador stevens wrote to the secretary of state and others and said i know mr. are al qaeda cells here in libya, and i don't feel safe. those pleas were ignored. why did that happen? this white house and people like dr. ruiz, who are sympathizers and apologists for the greatness of america still believe that -- they believe that actually, if we apologize to our opponents, if we're just nice to them, they'll be nice to us in return. because of this our country is less safe, it is a much more dangerous place today than it was four years ago. >> thank you, congresswoman. dr. ruiz, you have 30 seconds to rebut. >> congresswoman continues to speak the language of gridlock. this is clear evidence why congress is broken. now, over and over she will repeat this incident in the city of plymouth, and it's a shame, it is a shame, it is a shame that you are trying to make me seem like i'm anti-american. >> six years, six years, six years. >> the beauty of america, for which my father and your uncles went to war for were to protect our ability to give voice to our american heritage

at the state department do. chris stevens understood that diplomats must operate in many places where soldiers do not or cannot, where there are no other goods on the ground and security is far from guaranteed. and like so many of our brave colleagues and those who served in our armed services as well, he volunteered for his assignment. last year, our ambassador to syria was a salted in damascus by pro-regime thugs. but he insisted on continuing to meet with peaceful protesters and serving as a living manifestation of americans support. and when he drove to the battered city of hamas, people they're covered his car with flowers. people like chris and robert represent diplomacy and america at its and our best. they know that, when america is absent, especially from the dangers places, there are consequences. extremism takes root. our interest suffers and our security at home is threatened. so we will continue sending our diplomats and development experts to dangerous places. the united states will not retreat appeared we will keep leading and we will stay in gates' everywhere in the world, incl

values. >> first let me express my condolences about ambassador stevens and others who lost their lives, they gai their lives for this country and for a vision of a better world. i do think that president obama was correct in working with our allies to see gaddafi removed in libya. that doesn't mean you hold up a mission accomplished banner. this is a complicated region and the future is uncertain. we know that the past was not serving anyone's security interests and not good for the people of libya, but the future is going to take a whole lot of work and so i think you stick to your principles you support democracy when you can, support transparency when you can and you keep working to make it a safer world but we all know that this is a very volatile region and there are no easy answers. >> representative wilson? >> over the last few months events over africa and the mideast have highlighted we are still living in a dangerous world. american foreign policy always must be reflective of our most deeply held beliefs, that means a belief in freedom. but at the same time when people rebel
